by bill clinton and george w. bush and they got used to that and he now has an opportunity to go there, to explain to them that he's got their back, that he's been with them in their times of difficulties, whether it's at the u.n. or rockets from gaza or the iranian nuclear program, and that he's going to be with them in the future, and i think he'll use his oratorical magic and i think he'll have a powerful impact and that will be very helpful for an effort to restart the peace process after he leaves. tavis: you've said a couple of things that i want to pick apart. let me start with the notion that the president has a very low standing, a low approval rating amongst the israeli public. what has been the cause of that and has his -- i'm trying to find the right word here -- fractured or less than lovie dovie relationship with bibi netanyahu had anything to do with that standing? >> well, it's interesting you use the words "lovie dovie" because the president is not a lovie dovie kinda guy and that's part of the problem. i
thing interesting is secretary of state clinton kept her distance from the israeli-palestinian issue. i think you will see secretary kerry in the middle of this. clinton may have been thinking about the pobbletd of running for president someday, john kerry has been there, done that. and heard in that clip where prime minister netanyahu said the iranians would not move unless there was a credible threat of military action, and you heard the president come out very clearly saying containment is not my policy, they're not going to get a weapon no matter what we need to go do. and i think even though he's said that before, they needed to hear it right there and the iranians needed to hear it right there. >> while he was over there, there were some pretty horrific accusations coming out of syria, from both sides, that chemical weapons had been used. how credible was that? and what does that do to the whole international posture on syria? >> you know, the accusations were made very generally about chemical weapons being muse -- used but there was no mention of nerve gas or sarin or any of the

government promised former secretary of state hillary clinton to inspect all of iranian flights so far that's reportedly not happening. now secretary kerry's turn to get it done. >> good morning. wink, wink, nudge, nhung from the iraqis to the iranians. the revolutionary guard soldiers to head from iran into syria to help assad. the united states has only pressured the iraqis privilege atly up until now. the fact they are doing so publicly and sharing intelligence means the shaming of iraq now begins. fox news was the first organization to report on the freight. the combination of everything from syrian airliners to shankar go planes. eye rain wran cargo planes, supply anything that syria needs. money, weapons and ammunition, soldiers. all those kinds of things from tehran into various bases all around syria. western intelligence sources confirmed to fox news that the video you are watching now is amateur video of those planes landing inside of syria. of course, no secrets the flights take place multiple times a week. it is no secret that the iranians support the syrians. what has the unite
't a campaign worth waging. but, let me play you a sound bite from hillary clinton and get your reaction to that go. >> in the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that saddam hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons' stock, his missile delivery capability and his nuclear program. he has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al qaeda members. it is clear, however, that if left unchecked, saddam hussein will continue to increase his capacity to it wage biological and chemical warfare and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. >> bill: all right. so hillary clinton says. this and that was before the war began. but you didn't buy into that powers. i'm very curious to know why you didn't buy hillary clinton's line. >> i just don't think there was a lot of evidence to support what she was saying. it's very painful even to listen to it now honestly that speech she just gave there is why i didn't vote for her in the primary because she doesn't -- >> bill: wait, kate. >> even claiming that he had this relationshi
borrow that from hillary clinton's pantsuit? >> we weren't inclusive. >> rience priebus came out with the autopsy what happened in the campaign of 2012 which i'm sure you remember. >> we had some biologically stupid things that were said. >> i do remember the election. >> is america still the land of opportunity? >> you called trust and verify which is your immigration plan. >> what we're trying to do is add teeth to that bipartisan plan. >> more than half our members have never dealt with the issue of immigration reform. >> poco spanglish. >> if you're not showing up in the community, the perception becomes reality. >> that's about all i can do. >> maria teresa kumar. and joy reid, managing editor of the joy, rand paul has made pretty big waves today on immigration, as you heard. stop laughing. he said in a speech today, "i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging we are not going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants." okay, so we all think pathway to citizenship. then he begins to kind of hedge his bets a bit and starts withdrawing. so what exactly is
. remember back what bill clinton as president did when the same netanyahu was prime minister disagreed with clinton. he paid a political price because israelis loved clinton. this is not the same with obama. the president would benefit from the trust from israelis even when he has disagreements with their prime minister. not to say the president owes israelis anything. he is not their president. he is the american one. they don't deserve his love. but it would be expedient for him to gain their trust when he disagrees with the prime minister, more than when he agrees with them. >> what message is teheran taking from all this? this visit today. and when we talk about iran a year or so away from having a nuclear weapon, are we inching closer toward a military conflict? we can't be sanctioning them any more than we already are. >> i think first, a very important point for both the prime minister and president is that teheran here a similar message. it is important because in a sense we have a game of chicken going on. iranians, if they are convinced that u.s. threat for use of force is cr
more effectively in the way that bill clinton was able to do in the '90s. >> now, chuck, i would be remiss if -- there was a light-hearted moment in that netanyahu/president obama press conference yesterday that did involve you. let's play it and we'll come back and talk about it. >> reporter: so i've heard. >> thank you, mr. president, mr. prime minister. mr. president, i want to follow up a little bit on the peace process. mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here and then a question -- another question i had for you is -- >> chuck, how many you got? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question. she was very well behaved, chuck? >> i've got one for you. >> these are -- >> passover starts in a couple days. i get four questions, right? >> this is not a kosher question, but don't hog it. >> chuck, i mean you're just incorrigible. >> the incorrigible chuck todd. >> reporter: there are worse things to be called by the president. but let the record state it was three questions. one for the president and maybe i slipped in two for the prime minis
for senate. politico reports that former president bill clinton and other big-name democrats are trying to get someone else to run against mitch mcconnell in kentucky. one of the names emerging is 34-year-old allison lundergan grimes, the kentucky secretary of state. ashley judd hasn't even said she's decided to run. >>> they're calling it a vote-a-rama. in the chamber that's usually slow to move. senators will be allowed to offer unlimited amendments to the budget. >>> attorney general eric holder is back to work today after taking leave to do his civic duty. the former judge reported for jury duty yesterday. he was dismissed. >>> and a new children's book teaches kids about the national debt. now, the villain in "mr. penny and the dragon of domeville" is a dragon that eats money, designed to represent a bloated federal government. the author says he wants to remind kids and their families that the country is in trouble. >>> and if you read only one thing this morning, a lot of pundits have predicted the new pope, francis, may surprise people. well, today the "new york times" reports o
to hack a person very connected to the clintons and apparently obtained about four memos between blumenthal and mrs. clinton in the days immediately after september 11th, 2012 when she was being informed about what happened in benghazi. this was an interesting question for the media because the memos, you know, the hacked memos contained correspondence about a subject that is news worthy, that has been covered by most organizations, some more than others, but most organizations and yet, when obtained by a hacker illegally, what did the media do with such correspondence? >> validate is what they do, the base rules of journalism would say, something ill-gotten, if it's consequence people are less likely to use it. the bush e-mails that included self-portraits by the former president, and sensitive family descriptions of his father's condition when he was in the hospital, those things made it out pretty quickly. this, being consequential, ironically, hasn't made it out into establishment press outlets. it's not out there now because it could be a matter of real significance. it's no
taxpayers. in 1990's president clinton worked with a republican congress to grow the economy and to restrain spending. in the 1990's, the balanced budget agreement actually resulted in a much faster balanced budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans in the 1990's, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream th
-mail sent to the former secretary of state hillary clinton. other reported targets include colin powell's facebook page and e-mails of the bush family. a shadowy figure is said to be behind the hacking. we're trying to figure out just what is going on, just who the guccifer as it is pronounced is. brian todd is walking into the situation room right now. you've been looking into the story. what are you finding out? >> this is a very mysterious figure and he has the u.s.'s best investigators after him. we have confirmed as wolf mentioned this afternoon the secret service is investigating the hacks of e-mails sent to hillary clinton by a former aide. experts worry the perpetrator may start to target e-mails mrs. clinton, herself, and others will send. a hacker who is reported to have broken into correspondence involving former presidents apparently has found a new target. confidential memos to hillary clinton from a former aide have been hacked according to the website smoking gun. the secret service says it is investigating. smoking gun says it has been in touch with the hacker known as g
.com. richard, you were in the white house during the clinton years. there seemed to be a lot of progress between israel and the palestinians in terms of peace. not nearly the progress we're seeing now in the president obama administration. >> this is something that president clinton really focused on. a lot of progress was made. we saw in president obama's first term a reluctance to dive into this. maybe because he couldn't find a solution. he left most of this to secretary of state hillary clinton. now i think this trip is to sort of shore up and do some of the things he couldn't get done in that first term and show israel we are really there for him. it's been a successful trip so far for him. >> you have spent a lot of time in the region. what's the significance of john kerry being there before the president and staying there after the president leaves. >> i think it shows this is more than just a photo-op. the white house is trying to downplay expectations but at the same time, they're laying the groundwork for greater involvement and more discussions. we will see if the secretary of
. a lot of it rests on netanyahu and his first incarnation. even clinton, a guy who was prepared to cut him all kinds of breaks was annoyed in extreme us with some of netanyahu's frustrating behavior. but the reality is that barack obama has to clear away this old business, this dysfunctional relationship and he has to deal with two basic realities. he does not want to be the american president on whose watch the two-state solution expires and he certainly doesn't want to be the america president on whose watch iran acquire it is xas capacity or everybody a nuclear weapon. so israel is central to both of those stories. he's going early, there's no expectations and he's going early with a view i suspect to seeing whether or not he can't manage that relationship with netanyahu more effectively and create a new relationship with an israeli public who's deeply mistrustful of his detachment and lack of emotional connectedness to the idea of israel. so i think it's an important trip. i think it's a necessary trip. and i'm predicting that their relationship is going to improve at least over th
this bold move with president clinton in camp david we got the second entafata. and over a thousand israelis killed as a result of a security situation implemented from a poorly implemented peace process and the israelis feels we have to be past the arafat era and most of all real security and that's why prime minister netanyahu as he tried to make peace with the palestinians and the rest of the arab world will insist that any agreement we reach must be be based on firm security grounds. >> mike: there appeared to be a thawing of what obviously had been a rather frosty relationship between the president and prime minister netanyahu and all of that is very helpful and good. you love to see a warmer or more cordial relationship. the real question, do the israelis feel more confident that the united states will step in and do anything necessary to keep iran from having nuclear weapons? >> that's an excellent question, governor because in our private discussions, this subject has come up. sometimes we have a warmer relationship with an american president and sometimes a colder relationship and o
. cutting waste means more fairness for hard-working taxpayers cricket in the 1990's, clinton worked with a republican congress to grow the economy and restrain spending. result7 agreement unnamed much faster balanced budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans and part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people support balancing our budgets, and the budgets that democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and much higher taxes from the american people. we hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that balances the budget. let's be clear, democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget are out of step. the american people know you cannot continue to spend money you do not have. i did not come here for a federal tight -- fancy title. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream that i had, not some mountain of debt. that is why republicans are working to balance the fed
weapons ban passed in 1994 and that required a lot of arm twisting on the part of president bill clinton on members of his own part for exactly this reason, because there are a lot of democrats and in a lot of red states with very big gun cultures and significant opposition to gun control measures that clinton really had to work every bit of political capital he had to get that done in '94. barack obama has shown, even though they gave all of these remarks in the state of the union address and elsewhere, megyn, that he's just not willing to pick up that fight and die on this particular hill. harry reid looks at his caucus and says, look, i've got 55 democrats in my senate caucus here. i can't get 40 votes for this. i've got a number of very vulnerable democrats coming up in red states like alaska, arkansas, louisiana. >> megyn: north carolina. >> west virginia, north carolina, montana for example, i don't want them dying on this hill and i'm going to strip it out. have it voted on, they will vet a vote, and on an amendment and that means the death of the ban. >> megyn: even dianne feinst
months. you can see the administration is not cooperating. secretary clinton, did she even go visit the wounded out at bethesda? you need subpoena power really to protect the federal employees. their careers are on the line. if you're 50 years old, you don't want to get across the bricks with your boss and lose your jobs with maybe kids in college, have a mortgage. so you will have to have a select committee. you will have to subpoena them. this can be done in private. otherwise the american people will never know. bill: let me cut right to this now. you mentioned cover-up. what are they trying to cover up? >> well i think that is what the select committee will find out. what happened that day? why did it take so long? are we not interviewing? why did secretary clinton when she talked about the four people who were heroes who died, why did she not mention those who were wounded? we have an obligation to them. we should honor them. we should thank them. there are more questions out here than there are answers. bill: another question for you then. the house committee has subpoena powe
's been on the verge of doing something more. we've learned that hillary clinton and leon panetta both were pushing for more direct aid for opposition months ago. he has been resisting. it's a mess. how this plays out we may some day thank the president for not getting the u.s. involved, or we could look back and say he missed the opportunity. the possibility that someone has used chemical weapons has taken this to a far more dangerous level. >> michael: yes, it's the pressure of everything presidential decision when it relates to issues like these. a little silliness accompanies the trip to the israeli embassy. a video commemorating this visit, and take a look at this ridiculousness. >> welcome president obama to israel. we express our appreciation for what he has done for us. >> the bonds between the united states and israel are unbreakable ♪ thank you for being a friend ♪ travel down the road ♪ and back again ♪ your heart is true ♪ you're pal ♪ thank you for being ♪ a friend ♪ >> michael: eleanor, this goes back to my thinking that this entire trip is about just show
on almost a daily basis. first, secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the reforms bat created a coherent syrian opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. we are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states oftentimes it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something militarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context, an international context,
be allowed. we've seen the president, obama change his mind. president clinton changed his mind. hillary rodham clinton came out and spoke about it. republican rob portman spoke about it. and i think, wolf, there's a question here about whether this shift in public opinion is actually going to affect the supreme court. those justices sitting on the bench. when you talk to both sides of the argument, one side says, the side that's for same sex marriage, will say, you know, maybe it will help us because the court won't think it's such a heavy lift to rule in favor of same sex marriage. they won't be going against public opinion and in the way they were against interracial marriage, for example. or on the other side, they say the court will also say, look. it's proceeding in the states. you know, you now have eight or nine states who have approved same sex marriage. public opinion is shifting. let it play out with the voters and the court's not the place to do it. >> they're very conservative ideas at play here, too. back in 1996 when the court passed the defense of marriage act a lot of pe
did this and president johnson did this and in my judgment president clinton did this remarkably wem. and i think president obama is getting better. today he's meeting with 13 senators tonight at the jefferson hotel in washington. which maybe our conference helped move along. but it is tough -- i want to mention one other thing. it's tough because it's hard tore deal with the congress and sometimes it's unpless tonight deal with the congress. but there is no other choice, the president must engage. but one of the other issues i want to raise quickly is another factor, and charlie you talked about this a bit. in the days we were building this country, the space program and all these wonderful things it was easier to work together. let's look at the things they are dealing with today, sequester, how are we going to cut medicare, social security, how are we going to get the budget down. these are tough. these are politically difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is just cutting and reducing, it's not natural for people to enjoy doing the job under those circums
this as good as anybody, and my judgment president clinton did this remarkably well. i think president obama is getting better. today, he's meeting with 13 senators at the jefferson hotel in washington. maybe that will help our conference move along. but it is -- it is tough because -- i want to mention one other thing. it is tough because it is harder to deal with the congress and sometimes it is unpleasant to deal with the congress. but there is no other choice. the president must engage and it is a learning experience. one other issues i wanted to raise quickly. another factor and charlly talked about this. -- charlie talked about this. it was easier to work together. look at what they are dealing with, sequester, cutting, how do we cut medicare? when are we going to cut social security? how do we get the budget down? >> these what i call tough -- almost impossiblely difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is reducing, cutting, it is not natch for people to enjoy doing the job under those circumstances. they don't feel positive to each other and friendly to reach o
where this debate is taking place between obama, hillary clinton, and i'm pumping breast milk. i just had my kid 20 minutes before i'm going on. i'm trying to get my head in the game. think about the questions i wanted to ask. breast milk is flying everywhere over my notes. how do you lean in at that moment? what is the equivalent of that for wolf blitzer or joe scarborough? it is a moment where you say, i can't do this! and i don't care what advice is in a self-help book that sort of gets me over that hump! >> you were doing it, though. >> you've had moments like that? >> no, i haven't. it is so much easier for men because looking at my mom or my aunts or other women in my life that have worked and been juggling everything, it's just so hard, because, you know, you go all in one way and you feel like you're missing out. you go in all in the other warks you feel like you're missing out. it's a constant balancing act and most women i know -- >> as campbell says, life is messy. but i think the point of sheryl's book is asking the question why aren't there more senior women in business,
side of the coin bill clinton, you know, weighed into the israeli political campaign in 1998, you go back to george h.w. bush and jim baker had a very tense relationship with former israeli prime minister shamir over settlements and loan guarantees, so the tension is real but not unprecedented, but you can manage it because of deep cooperation that the two countries have on a variety of issues to both. >> richard wolf, at the time there were people in israel saying what joe klein was saying. >> right. >> it was very controversial thing that bb netanyahu was doing, given that he worked literally in the same office with mitt romney in boston years ago, there was just plenty of suspicion around the whole thing. when president obama arrives there today, i assume there's going to be, there was absolutely none of that from president obama, seemed like all the burden was on netanyahu today to try to make up for what he had done during the campaign. >> right. let's be clear. this is more awkward situation for the israeli prime minister than it is for the american president. the israeli prime
administrations and a former obama adviser as well. so clinton bush and obama, all of the above. first of all to you, jeffrey, your reaction to the speech today. you were there in the hall, the feeling from the young people. admittedly, more supportive of obama perhaps than the overall israeli public. >> maybe, but i mean many university students do lean right. most amazing thing about it for me was a huge ovation when president obama called for the creation of a palestinian state in different iterations and i was thinking when i was in there, if he had given that speak at an apec convention in washington, he might have been booed. i'm trying to imagine what arab audiences across the muslim world were thinking when they saw israelis cheer obama for calling, for palestinian state. it was kind of a brief moment of possibility there. >> and dennis, you spent so many years trying to make this happen, do you think in retrospect, that the administration got off on the wrong foot with prime minister netenyahu, the cairo speech, not following it up perhaps and calling for the settlement freeze in yea
went to see bill clinton speak. found out for sure i was pregnant for the first time at a doctor's office in the creaky downtown. i was just in the area two weeks ago to celebrate my daughter's birthday with old neighbors and friends. what you might be struck by most if you were to visit is how genuine how kind, how open, how sincere. that's what struck me. in fact, this town is like your hometown, this high school is like your high school. something here went horribly wrong and it could go horribly wrong where you live too. yesterday i saw this headline -- another football player accused of rape. another community blaming the victim. this isn't a football sure, not a social media issue, it's an american issue, an-mile-an-hour issue that in 2013 we still live in a country where too many tolerate blaming the rape victim and calling her a whore, where a boys will be boys attitude about rape and a wink and nod for covering up for men in positions in power. folks, you and i own this culture. we can't allow these attitudes to persist. if we do, the circle of culpability radiating out
secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the efforts that formed a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry who's deeply involved in that effort as well. and we are providing not just words but resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan, but there are a whole bunch of people who are internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily. and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily, then it's criticized for going in militarily. and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily. and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context a
of the conversation on iraq. go back and look at the floor speeches hillary clinton and john kerry voted for the iraq war resolution on the floor of the senate. what they said is we are empowering the president to have a credible threat to wield in order to make diplomacy happen. the logic behind much of the support for the iraq war resolution, and that whole month leading up to the actual invasion was the idea that it was only the credible threat of an intervention that had gotten the inspectors back into iraq. that was making diplomacy possible. what ended up happening at the end of that road? the thing that was put on the table, right, was picked up and used, right? this is like the checkov quote if you put a gun on stage in the first act, it has to go off in the third. if you put military intervention on the table in our political environment, you increase the likelihood of it being used. there's this bizarre argument which goes around that you can incredibly wield military intervention as a threat and the more credible it is the less likely it gets used because it forces diplomacy. i don't think
, 185 different welfare programs and block grants the largest and most expensive ones just as clinton did with aid to families with children. we have this reform of entitlement and reform of these welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25% and the bottom rate to 10%. now we go from 10 up to 44 and the corporate rate which is 35% right now. the average in europe is 25 so we compete internationally. we tax our companies and our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. we want to take that rate to 25. i would rather be better than europe and the canadians are at 17%. i preferred the canadian rate than the european average so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. there is also a third budget which is the congressional budget which is more liberal democrats and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed. you have a sense of there are some democrats who want to go even further into big government and patty than patty murray and president obama. >> host: americans for tax reform is best known
, the same month the of the egypt israel peace treaty. in clinton's term, there were four visits. in 1994, a peace treaty signed between israel and jordan while he was here. there were two things during that time, a crucial moment for the u.s. to show its friendship and again, during a peace accord. and then george w. bush waited until the very end of his term until he was about to leave office, but that's when his administration was doing finally at a point in the peace discussions where a pld shal visit could add know men actual. and so that timing people here say made sense. this time, there is no similar momentum the president's visit could lend to any peace deal, to any discussion regarding iran and no deliverable regarding syria, so many people just don't understand why now. >> so you bring up iran. let me ask about iran. do we have any idea what president obama may be saying about iran, what is it that prime minister netanyahu would like to hear? >> quite simply he's expected to repeat what we heard before, that he will say iran simply cannot be allowed to get a nuclear capability.
clinton herself said. jon: ambassador john bolton. aaron david miller, general jack keane, we have to say good-bye. thank you for your insight. just goes to show why this is such a thorny area of the world. thank you all. >> appreciate it. jon: the, video you were seeing there in that very small country an illustration how tiny israel is. president obama has already arrived at the home the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, where with his left-handed signature there you see he is signing the guest book. there is prime minister netanyahu. jenna: trying to make out the words just to see what he is signing? jon: would be interesting to see what he is, good close-up by the camera crew but we don't know exactly what he is saying. at any rate the president on his first visit to israel as president. we will continue our coverage in just a moment. >> announcer: you never know when, but thieves can steal your identity and turn your life upside down. >> hi. >> hi. you know, i can save you 15% today if you open up a charge card account with us. >> you just read my mind. >> announcer: just one littl
on record now before these arguments, where they stand. hillary clinton this week, rob partman last week, a real moment. >> a historical, seminole moment where people feel the need to get on the record now. if you make a statement after next week, is that too late? >> i don't think so. if the catholic church is going to show movement, now would be the time. i think it's probably unlikely and certainly the majority of republicans in elected, political office are not yet supportive. but there is definitely much less polarization around this. >> and also a seminnother impor moment. john berman turned another year older. zoraida has the cakes. >> i took my mike off and i need to use yours. let me tell you, we got you this cake and i went to the back and had you two additional cakes. you are a very popular man. happy birthday. no candles. but you can pretend and make a wish. >> the different cakes, because the staff can't agree on what they like. >> velvet, oreo, and chocolate fudge. >> we have to pause so i can eat this. now to newsroom with carol cosstello, pretty please. >> happy birthday!
clinton? he came here four times as president. he was so deeply involved, we were both covering the white house in those days, in the camp david process and others, the israelis miss that, a guy who can draw the maps, president bush didn't get that involved. president obama hasn't gotten that involved. they're different people, personally and how they carry themselves politically and in their philosophies. the prime minister in cracking jokes when the president has landed is trying to say, i'm trying and now we'll see if the president is trying. >> we'll get back to jessica in a moment. tom foreman, this trip comes at a time when so many israelis feel increasingly vulnerable due in large part to the major political changes occurring in the region and their neighborhood. tom is taking a closer look at that region. what are you seeing, tom? >> john made references of being able to draw the map there. it is important to bear in mind the map here. look at where the president is visiting here, he's going to really a small part of a small area, but a very important part as you know, with stops
and secretary clinton and now secretary kerry the mandate to push for a two-state solution. it's been difficult. i do think this is a significant visit. his first visit as president and secretary kerry obviously has come earlier and is going to be staying later and doing a little shuttle diplomacy. the palestinians are very skeptical. but i do believe that they would view the president's visit and look for any opportunity to get these talks restarted. of course, they've been on the sidelines, waiting for what they see as a critical issue, the settlements to halt. israelis have said, look, we're ready to talk at any point as long as you don't put p preconditions on these talks. >> i'm glad you brought that up. ambassador, i'm glad you brought that up. really interesting report in "the new york times" today says an internal palestinian memo suggests that president abbas may no longer call for the israelis to publicly state they will halt the settlements. in other words, they're not going to make that a precondition to negotiations anymore. if this is true, would that be a significant development
with egypt was signed later that month. clinton came four times, and on his first visit israel signed a peace with jordan while he was here. george w. bush came twice, both times to build momentum for ongoing peace talks. but this time, you know there's no groundwork for peace talks. there's no signs of a strategy to resolve conflicts in the region. so the president's critics especially in this area worry whether this trip is little more than a courtesy call. they're grateful for the courtesy call, but strategically they question what he can really get done. >> interesting. jessica yellen in jerusalem. we'll be checking in with you tomorrow. thanks. >>> a convicted school shooter in court laughs off his crime and mocks his fate. his shocking sentence. that's next. humans. even when we cross our "ts" and dot our "i's", we still run into problems. that's why liberty mutual insurance offers accident forgiveness with our auto policies. if you qualify, your rates won't go up due to your first accident. because making mistakes is only human, and so are we. we also offer new car replacement, so if y
president clinton had seen president assad in geneva in january 1994. and prior to the trip, we had, you know, the prime minister conveyed to us what it is he wanted to see come out of it. and we actually produced what it is he wanted to see come out of it. so i walked into the meeting with rabin feeling highly confident, you know, all right, we did what you asked. and the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. now, why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. and if you go into these kinds of meetings and the expectations are very high, then each leader is suddenly worried about what you're going to ask of them. when the expectations are low, you're in a much better position to have a serious conversation, and you can actually explore, all right, what are the possibilities here. but maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about what are the consequences of not getting anything done with each side? and if the consequences are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible, and where could t
